WEDDING AT ST. AUGUSTINE’S
Yesterday, Vicky Howse, the daughter of Jan and Father Martin Howse, married Mark Wheelhouse at a Nuptial Mass at St. Augustine’s. The church was packed with family, friends, members of St. Augustine’s congregation and members of Vicky’s class at St. Edmund’s School, Romford where she is a Maths teacher. Vicky met Mark at University where both were doing Maths degrees.
Father Martin conducted the Marriage and pronounced the Nuptial Blessing and the sermon was preached by Father Rowland Webb. Father Graham, a friend of the family and Father Mervyn concelebrated the Mass with Father Martin and Father Rowland. After the ceremony, the reception was held at West Lodge, Upminster where we enjoyed sumptuous food, great company and had a wonderful time.
It was a really lovely day and we wish Vicky and Mark every blessing and happiness in their married life.
6th SUNDAY OF EASTER
Today Father Mervyn presided and preached, Father Graham read the Gospel and the three priest together concelebrated the Mass. Father Mervyn used Rumpole of the Bailey, that wonderful character invented by John Mortimer, to illustrate what an Advocate is and what he does.
Yesterday because of the wedding the Saturday Shop was closed but we reopen next Saturday.
Tomorrow we will be going to Walsingham for the National Pilgrimage.
